The We Need Diverse Books Indegogo: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/we-need-diverse-books
Reading is the ultimate form of empathy. Though more than half of schoolchildren are minorities--people of color, LGBTQIA, and/or people with disabilities--the fact remains that too few of these children see reflections of themselves in the books they read. Books are more than mirrors-- they’re windows as well. The more kids read, the more they understand not just themselves, but the Story of Us All.

Other people's books:

* Drawn Blades by Kelly McCullough
"Aral the jack, formerly the noble Aral Kingslayer, is the best kind of hero: damaged, cynical, and despondent, yet needing only the right cause to rise from his own ashes."—Alex Bledsoe, author of The Hum and the Shiver

* A Death at the Dionysus Club by Melissa Scott, Amy Griswold
In the sequel to Lambda Literary Award-winning Death by Silver, metaphysician Ned Mathey and private detective Julian Lynes again challenge magical and murderous threats in a Victorian London not quite the city in our history books.

* New Rivers of London short story: The Home Crowd Advantage by Ben Aaronovitch

Thank you so much for the Ben Aaronovitch link - I would never have come across that! I'm so looking forward to Foxglove Summer coming out...

And I also wanted to say how much I loved Stories of the Raksura: Volume One. Can't wait for Volume Two! I must get myself organised and leave a (bumbling, incoherent but enthusiastic) review on Amazon UK...

I just happened to see it on Twitter. There's another short story if you buy the book at Waterstones (which I can't do, but hopefully they'll post it or collect it somewhere after the promotion is over.)

Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it! :)
